REDMOND, OR -- The Bureau of Land Management is considering a new parking lot and other enhancements at the Cline Buttes Recreational Area, west of Redmond. The goal is to protect golden eagle nests and other resources by restoraign areas damaged by user-created routes, while also improving human access to the popular hiking, biking and equestrian trails.
“We plan to connect existing trails, providing even longer routes for recreators,” Deschutes Field Office Manager Lisa Clark said in a statement. “This project is special because it protects the area while also meeting our community’s need for expanded trail access.”
BILM is taking public online comment on the plan through 4:30 p.m. on September 21st. Comments may be submitted through the ePlanning website, where the full plan is also available to the public.
